At last, there is a viable option for the style conscious person searching for both Fair Trade and environmentally responsible footwear. Inspired by shoes worn by Brazilian volleyball teams of the 1970s, Veja sneakers have a retro flair and are produced using fair labor and organic and environmentally responsible techniques, materials and practices.
The Paris-based company works directly with Brazilian cooperatives to source the eco-friendly materials for the shoes -- organic cotton and natural latex from the Amazon.
